“Top Drawer”

Written on: 22/08/2015 by Reesje181 (1 review written)

Was recommended to use the ECU Doctor by a friend/mechanic after my Vauxhall Vivaro van broke down and wasn't disappointed. the person I dealt with aka the ECU doctor offers an absolute first class service and is conscientious, thorough, very professional and very competitive with the overall cost. You also get a full years warranty and excellent service. Thank you, would highly recommend using the ECU Doctor… Read Full Review

“Brilliant service!”

Written on: 21/08/2015 by Huntmaster650 (1 review written)

Posted my Rover 75 ECU late on a Friday for testing. ECU Doctor rang me on Tuesday to advise that ignition circuit blown. Also suggested a possible cause or causes. Repaired unit delivered back to me the following morning. Car started but misfired on one cylinder. Took ECU Doctor's advice and traced it to a faulty coil/spark plug cap. Car now running perfectly again. Simply excellent service with costs exactly as expected. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“Back on the road thanks to the ECU Doctor”

Written on: 24/07/2015 by Reaganz117 (1 review written)

My lovely Hyundai Accent, with 180,000 miles on the clock suddenly started misfiring on 1 and 4. I extracted the ECU and took it to a local guy who saw it was a Siemens unit and wasn't able to help but he recommended the ECU Doctor. Sent it off to them, great communication and quickly returned after a diagnosis and repair at reasonable cost. Plopped it in and brmmm brmmm!! Overall a very good service that I would recommend… Read Full Review

“Be careful”

Written on: 22/07/2015 by cassie4123 (1 review written)

I can't fault the company in one way as they have tried very hard to fix the computer on my husband's car, but be very careful. Think carefully before you send your computer off for repair, we have paid £200 and £20 plus postage and the car still will not work. They recalled the product when it didn't work the first time and now we are awaiting their response for the second failure. I wish we had put the money into a different car, scrapped the current one and cut our losses. Is it the… Read Full Review

“accurate advice on non ECU fault”

Written on: 10/06/2015 by 442Ramirez (1 review written)

I was having low power problems with my Mercedes C36 and had investigated a number of areas and was about to get ECU shipped to and tested by ECU doctor. ECU doctor advised me it was probably fuel delivery problem after I described the symptoms. This turned out to be entirely accurate, as although most of the fuel system was replaced one fine mesh filter was original, so instead of a simple no we won't test your ECU they directed me to what they thought was the problem - all through one email… Read Full Review

“ECU Doctor puts life back into Vauxhall Zafira.”

Written on: 10/05/2015 by TomDixon441 (1 review written)

My daughter's 2007 Vauxhall Zafira 1.9 diesel had been refusing to start, intermittently to begin with, but eventually refused to start or do anything at all. The trouble was eventually tracked down to corroded pins on the large multi-connector on the engine ECU and on the end of the wiring loom connecting to it. Having done some research on the Internet I came across a lot of positive reviews of the ECU Doctor so I decided to contact them via email and explain my dilemma, I received a… Read Full Review

“Back on the road again thanks”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by davidm504 (1 review written)

After several months in my local garage finding the problem on my imported Grand Hiace Wagon looked destined for the scrap yard. The initila problem was engine cutting out after warming up but this gradually worsened until the 1KZ-TE engine just wouldn't start at all. After a lot of forum searching the ECU was the only thing we hadn't tried but the garage's usual contacts couldn't help as this is an imported model. A quick call to ECU Doctor after a search on the internet and they would have a… Read Full Review

“The ECU Doctor did it for me”

Written on: 02/05/2015 by isWillis490 (1 review written)

This company really got me back on the road after repairing my faulty ecu, after owing my Toyota Surf for the last 13 years without being let down it decided to not start for me. I had heard of the ECU Doctor through one of the Toyota Surf forums so after checking out the most obvious areas that could have gone wrong I gave them a call. And asked the friendly staff if it was possible to have my ECU checked out for faults, bearing in mind that the Toyota is 22 years old, but I was very relieved… Read Full Review

“Mis informed about work done to my Zafira ECU”

Written on: 19/04/2015 by john2120 (1 review written)

I had my ECU repaired just over 12 months ago I was told the main processor had gone and the repair would cost £200. I agreed to have the work done which was carried out and returned quickly, being a curious person I removed the cover and saw the repair, a tiny wire had come off the circuit board. the repair consisted of a small bridge between 2 contacts at the side with a blob of solder, due to the gel covering it is clear to see that nothing else was done.Yes it was repaired and has worked… Read Full Review

“ECU FAULT CODES NOT REPORTING - SORTED - THANKS”

Written on: 22/02/2015 by tystie (1 review written)

Had a broken ECU where incompetent DPF software removal had deleted ability to see fault codes. Engine systems fault light came on - went into limp mode - no fault readable by me or professional garage/tuner nor could they sort the software except at huge Ford costs. ECU doctor found the fault, reflashed an updated Ford software and sent me back the original unit. It was plug and play and the immobiliser system and keys all worked perfectly. Fault code was read - just needed glow plugs!! The… Read Full Review

“Positive Feedback for the ECU Doctor and team.”

My 2001 Vauxhall Astra G was dead. After reading all the reviews here, I asked if I could have my ECU tested on Monday. Everything was explained very clearly.I posted my ECU the same day and I was kept informed. My ECU was tested faulty and I was asked if I would like them to sort the fault. The ECU Doctor and team delivered on plan, price and schedule. Very nice,fast and efficient. My ECU was back in Wigan on Thursday morning 19.02.2015 and the Astra was brought back to life, thanks to the… Read Full Review

“Volswagen Digifant Repair”

Written on: 13/01/2015 by Leendert (1 review written)

Several years ago it was part of my business to search out repair possibilities for car control units relating to fuel injection. At the time we sent several units to ECU doctor which jobs were completed with excellent results. Now I am retired I came across a problem with our fuel injected Volkswagen. Having still knowledge from work in the past I was able to raise eyebrows at some of the diagnostics made by the experts even VW dealers! I remembered the good results from about 6 years ago and… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/08/2014 by Archerxk233 (1 review written)

Sent off my ECU to the doctor, they called back with good news that it could be fixed, paid for it then it was sent back to me the next day. Great service, and far more reasonable than getting a reconditioned or new unit. its given my old Audi a new lease of life as if it could not be repaired it was heading for the great scrap yard in the sky. Thank you once again ECU Doctor… Read Full Review
